Juvenile Delinquency in Knox, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Knox County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Tennessee often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.

In 2016, a total of 1224 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Knox County. Of that total, 48% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 591 court cases. Another 32% were dependency cases that accounted for 391 of the juvenile cases.

A lot of counties, including, Knox County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Knox County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
